Brent was a decent keyboard player .He played with the band in an era where improvisational skill wasn't important so to compare his ability to Keith's is laughable.It was easy to hammer away on a stack of keyboards or synth's with the drug addled and bored version of the GD he played with,try playing the piano on Dark Star or Playin' with that beast that was the early 70's Dead.And I found his "back-up" vocals to be far to prominent.As for his compositions,they were just unlistenable.

I repeat: yeesh.

How about "easy to love you"? I mean, don't these songs make you think of bad 80's synth bands? Bobby's just as guilty w/junk like "Picasso Moon", but the Brent songs were especially cheesy.

i agree these were not the best songs from the catalogue and cheesy at worst. i might add that a lot of music in the 80's sucked for whatever reason. i myself love the jam at the end of picasso moon. i know i am in the minority on this though!

I actually like parts of the jam in "Victim or The Crime" so I can relate.

You are right, of course. Nothing Brent ever did comes close to Keith 72-74, and even into 76. Too bad about all those downers.
